The article reports that Unicell has completed Quicksider, a prototype of the first zero-emission truck to be used within a courier fleet in Toronto, Ontario. The truck, built in partnership with ArvinMeritor and in collaboration with Purolator, is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 80%. Unicell chairman Roger Martin says the Quicksider is zero-emission in operation because it is fully electric.
